I am trying to: Hide the dropdown where we don't want

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:hidden link

I expected to see: There should not be an option of the dropdown for those pages where we don't want

Instead, I got: on every page

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. In these cases if the page where you need to hide the language switcher doesn't have a translation you can use the WPML features itself to achieve it, here is how:

1 - In your WordPress Dashboard > WPML > Languages > Language Switcher Options you can set it as 'skip language' for those pages without a translation. See:

2 - Another option is to completely hide the language switcher using a custom css code you can paste in your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS something like:

.page-id-{the id of your desired page here} .main-header .top-menu .wpml-ls-item {
display: none!important;

Hope it helps, have a nice day.
